Manuel Re-ups After All

Jerry Manuel must have heard the Bobby Valentine footsteps creeping up behind him because FoxSports.com is reporting that he suddenly is on the verge of signing a two year deal, with a team option for a third year.

As I said earlier, its not that I dislike Jerry but I would rather have seen someone else take over.  Yes, Manuel had a great record with the Mets since he took over in June.  But the fact remains that they also blew a 3 1/2 lead over the last few weeks and lost 9 of their last 16 under him.

After having him around for 3 straight end-of-season disapointments was grounds for change in my book.
